CLARKSTOWN, N. Y. -- The embattled Clarkstown Police Chief Michael Sullivan denies misconduct and incompetence charges leveled against him in his suspension while also revealing that the charges related to his social media postings about a former officer and his response to a demand that he reassign another officer, according to lohud.com.

Town officials did not specify details when the decided to suspend Sullivan on July 20, but Sullivan's lawyer released details about the seven charges and Sullivan's denial, lohud.com reports. The controversy has drawn plenty of attention already as evidenced by a rally earlier this week by Sullivan's supporters.

An attorney representing the Town responded to Sullivan's denials Thursday by saying the same rules of conduct apply to everyone in the department, including the chief. Town officials have 35 days to conduct a hearing on the suspension while Sullivan can continue to collect his $278,161 annual salary, lohud.com says.
